I m trying to replace my old 3way switch with new one, Zooz Z-Wave Plus On Off Wall Switch ZEN21 (White) VER. 2.0
Here is how my wiring looks, the color of the wires is wrong(my guess as traveller should be red):
That's why assumed what every wire is. This is how the other side of the 3way looks like :
I don't have the photo of the switch I m trying to replace but it looked exactly like the opposite side switch. Neutral was connected on one side, and line and load on the other. Assuming I was correct that white wire is Neutral.
This is the back of my new switch :
This is how I wired it now, put traveler in traveler, and neutral in neutral, as well as line and load on the other side. Again this is assuming my assumptions were correct in the first image :
I hope it does not matter in which hole I put the wires in, upper or lower ones on the backside of my new switch. As every type(neutral, traveler, line and load) has 2 holes to put the wire in
The LED light on the new switch turns on when the other side of the switch is turned off, indicating that something is not wired right :
Also turn on/off on the new switch does nothing. What am I doing wrong here? What can I try to wire this right. I mean the old simple switch worked just fine, did I buy something I can't really use on its own, or I messed up the wiring?
Edit 1: The old switch did not make use of the 'traveler' wire, and it worked. Again provided that my guess about traveler wire is actually accurate in image 1.
The light is now constantly on in this scenario, and I can turn it off and on from the other switch (black wires are touching). That would probably mean one of the black ones is traveler wire right? I think I m really close here, any ideas?
Since Harper pointed to me earlier in comments guessing isn't productive. So I watched this short video to figure out configuration of my switches, there are two. I managed to have these both switches working after watching the video using 'old' switches :
1) Switch A with hot wire, and two travelers. I used exact same steps as explained in video. I do not have any red wires like in video, but person in the video said 'once you disconnect both switches and you find a switch where there is house current, thats a hot one, others are travelers' 2) Switch B(I m trying to replace this switch) with load wire, and two travelers. This is my current setup :
Two travelers into two traveler sockets, neutral from the wall into neutral, load into load. I really don't get why is this working especially because I managed to get the old switch to old switch re-wired and working. Its just how to 'map' existing working wire configuration into this new fancy switch with different labels. For example there is no socket called common, here is a photo again:
